Itasca, IL – The National Safety Council announced today that the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, McAfee School of Business Administration at Union University, and Whittemore School of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire have become Robert W. Campbell Award Global Partners.
The Robert W. Campbell Award, co-founded by NSC and ExxonMobil Corporation, is an international award for business excellence that recognizes companies that successfully integrate safety, health and environmental (SH&E) management into their overall business operations.
“We are thrilled to have renowned schools such as these share our vision that SH&E management become an intrinsic and necessary part of doing business,” said Mei-Li Lin, Ph.D., NSC Executive Director of Research and Statistical Services. “Through our partnerships with business schools, we hope to influence current and future managers in their understanding of the role that safety, health and environmental concerns play in the productivity and sustainability of their organizations.”
The case study from the first winner of the Campbell Award, Noble Corporation – a Texas-based oil drilling contractor – was developed into a business school case study similar to those published by Harvard Business School. Through collaboration with Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, the winning Campbell Award case study was incorporated into Georgetown’s curriculum as well as several other business and engineering school curricula in North America.
“The integration of the Noble business case study into those curricula is an example of how the Campbell Award promotes the sharing of knowledge, the education of future business leaders, and encourages worldwide dialogue of best practices that promote safety and health while improving business,” added Lin.
Since SH&E transcends national borders, the Robert W. Campbell Award draws on global partners to provide worldwide outreach and support for safety, health and environmental initiatives and fosters collaborations that support the purpose and vision of the Robert W. Campbell Award.
